Jay Hard Hits BJD

As soon as he put his feet on Odisha soil, senior BJP leader and former MP Baijayant Panda hit the BJD where it hurts.

Mr.Panda had joined the saffron party at the national capital on Monday.

The four-time MP Panda attacked on the very existence of the BJD. He alleged that the party led by Naveen Patnaik has forgotten the ideology of legendary Biju Patnaik.

Being close to Patnaik for almost two decades, Panda knows that Biju Patnaik is the core point of BJD basing on which the regional outfit has been getting elected time and again.

The BJD has been successfully elected all elections since 2000 and formed government in the state four times in a row. The name of Biju Patnaik is core point of BJD and Panda preferred to attack on it.

"The BJD has forgotten the ideology of Biju Patnaik and was sheltering goons and persons involved in the multi-crore chitfund scam," Mr.Panda alleged.

Mr.Panda also alleged that BJD has been sheltering the goons and persons involved in the multi-crore chitfund scam.

The former MP from Kendrapara knows it pretty well that the people of Odisha had elected BJD after rejecting the Congress because of goondaism and harboring criminals.

He also raised chitfund issue in a bid to defame the BJD which he alleged of sheltering the leaders involved in the scam.

On the reason behind his joinig the BJP, Mr.Panda said:  "I have been praising the policies of Narendra Modi since long. I want to see a better India and a better Odisha and will serve my people to the best of my ability."

"Baijayant Panda's joining BJP will influence the politics in the state. We welcome him," Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan said.

Union Tribal Affairs Minister Jual Oram also welcomed Mr.Panda and said his joining will strengthen the party in Odisha.

He was suspended from the BJD last year on charge of anti-party activities and later he resigned from the party as well from the Lok Sabha.

Mr.Panda was elected to Lok Sabha twice from Kendrapara seat in 2009 and 2014. He was also a two time Rajya Sabha MP.
